  1. 1. The Klimontovich description of complex plasma systems Low frequency electrostatic modes, spectral densities of fluctuations and collision integrals

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Panagiotis Tolias; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; complex plasmas; dusty plasmas; Klimontovich equations; kinetic theory; dust acoustic waves; collision integrals;

    Abstract : Plasmas seeded with solid particulates of nanometer to micron sizes (complex plasma systems) are a ubiquitous feature of intergalactic, interstellar and planetary environments but also of plasma processing applications or even fusion devices.Their novel aspects compared with ideal multi-component plasmas stem from (i) the large number of elementary charges residing on the grain surface, (ii) the variability of the charge over mass ratio of the dust component, (iii) the inherent openness and dissipative nature of such systems.

  2. 2. Large Eddy Simulation of Complex Turbulent Flows

    University dissertation from Division of Fluid Mechanics, Department of Energy Sciences, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Berglund; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gases; fluid dynamics; plasmas; Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD ; Large Eddy Simulation; Complex Turbulent Flows; plasma; Gaser; fluiddynamik;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the Large Eddy Simulation methodology and its application to predict complex turbulent flows at high Reynolds numbers, and at times also with high Mach numbers. The meaning of the word ?complex? refers both to the presence of complex flow phenomena and the, often, complex geometry of man-made devices restricting the flow. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nonlinear Dust Particle Dynamics and Collective Effects in Complex Plasmas

    University dissertation from Umeå : Fysik

    Author : Gianfranco Sorasio; Umeå universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics; Complex Dusty Plasmas; Self excited; Nonlinear; Forced Oscillations; Electrostatic Instabilities in current-carrying magnetoplasmas; Cross-field instabilities in magnetized dusty plasmas; Dust Acoustic Waves; Electrostatic Dust Cyclotron Waves; Fysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik; fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : Theoretical studies of dusty plasmas have been performed by focusing attention principally on collective phenomena and on grain motion. This thesis consists of a collection of seven published papers that explore both the collective behavior of a complex plasma system as well as the dynamics of grains in plasmas. READ MORE

  4. 4. Test Charge Response of a Dusty Plasma with Grain Size Distribution and Charging Dynamics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH
